First in a brand-new sexy paranormal romance series from award- winning author C.J. Barry.
Seneca Thomas is an agent with XCEL, a secret government taskforce charged with capturing the dangerous shapeshifters that have infiltrated New York City, passing for humans. Her Native American heritage gives her a special gift-the ability to see the shapeshifters for what they are.
But when her partner is killed in the line of duty, Seneca finds herself teamed up with Max Dempsey-a shapeshifter. And when the pair discover a growing army of shifters gathering beneath the city, Seneca will have no choice but to trust the one man she shouldn't.
Seneca Thomas works for a covert government agency whose purpose is to rid the planet of Shifters, a race of aliens that utilize human DNA to blend into society. Seneca tracks down violent Shifters using her unique ability to "see" them, despite their disguises. When her partner is killed, rugged, handsome Max Dempsey replaces him, much to Seneca's annoyance and suspicion. Max is a Shifter, and became an agent to discover the identity of his wife's murderer, a traitor who almost destroyed the Shifter race on their last planet. An immediate attraction is present, but danger looms as a madman is creating an all-Shifter Army in the tunnels of NYC. In this novel the action is non-stop and the sexual tension between Max and Seneca sizzles. Barry has created a butt-kicking yet vulnerable heroine and a story that keeps readers going until the last page. (Aug.)
